At Caldecott & Forro, we help businesses and individuals in the greater Minneapolis-St. Paul area and throughout Minnesota handle a wide variety of legal issues. We have been in practice for more than 30 years and have had the privilege of helping clients navigate challenging life events. A few of them have kindly shared their experiences - here are their stories.
Caldecott & Forro represented me in very contentious litigation over the last 19 months. They prepared my case in great detail with witness statements, pictures, weather reports and expert medical and physical therapy reports woven into a clear presentation. The jury took less than two hours of deliberation before finding for me. If you need lawyers to fight for you these are the guys.
I am an honorably discharged Army veteran who served 3 tours of duty overseas in Kosovo, Iraq, and Kuwait during my military career.
My marriage did not survive these deployments. I hired Caldecott & Forro as my attorney to represent me on a host of marriage dissolution issues including custody, child support and insurance.
My former spouse has developed a passionate dislike for me. Richard Caldecott has relentlessly protected my interest and worked to protect my relationship with my two daughters. My ex-wife is unwilling to ever let me and my daughters have peace. Richard Caldecott has inserted himself between my ex-wife and I and refuses to let her ruin my life and my relationship with my daughters. He has also repeatedly thanked me for my military service. If you need an experienced, high-quality veteran-friendly family law attorney, hire Caldecott & Forro, P.L.C.
I hired Richard Caldecott at Caldecott & Forro, PLC to advise me on a business contract involving a restrictive employment agreement. When I changed jobs a few months later my former employer sued me. Richard got the case resolved in a manner that protected my new employment where I’m able to make way more money, and placed only a token of limitations on me for a very expanded customer base. I highly recommend hiring Mr. Caldecott and his firm if you have business problems that might result in a lawsuit.
Our experience with Caldecott & Forro, P.L.C., was simply outstanding. Attorney David Forro was informative, accessible and flexible. He handled our case in a professional manner and guided us every step of the way to a great outcome! We highly recommend Caldecott & Forro for your legal needs!

In July of 2013 my world was shattered when I learned that my husband was not only cheating on me, but had moved our family to his home state of Minnesota to alienate me from my family and friends and divorce me. With my family and friends 1400 miles away, I turned to the internet and found Richard Caldecott.
Richard was kind and empathetic. He also pointed out he had been practicing family law for more than 33 years. I told Rick that all I wanted was to go home to New Hampshire. We had barely lived in Minnesota a year. Rick told me interstate custody was tough, costly and there was no guarantee. He never promised me a win. He was highly efficient in keeping MY costs down. His letters to opposing council were clear and to the point: Our intention was to return to our home in New Hampshire. My ex threatened to fight me for full custody and told me I was going to get a war. Well, Rick was instrumental at letting them know that I was not raising my children in Minnesota for the next 14 years unless a judge told me I had to. Not long after Mediation, where 2 experienced lawyers agreed, after hearing the facts of the case, that a judge would allow me to return to my home state. Soon after, my ex realized he would not win against Richard Caldecott.
As devastating and traumatized as I was through this whirlwind process, Rick and his staff treated me with kindness, compassion, and constantly reassured me that I would be OK. A mere 5 months after I walked into his office sobbing and heartbroken, I left Minnesota to return home to New Hampshire with my children. I was awarded sole physical custody, child support, and we were HOME for Christmas.

Our family was referred to Richard Caldecott by a friend at work. He worked on a court case for my family and did an amazing job from start to finish. Richard returned calls when we left messages and was easy to get in contact with. His hourly rate was what I would consider very fair after reviewing other attorney's rates from the past.
We would use him again in the future and feel confident in referring him to other business partners and friends for both business issues and family issues.

My case was a very litigious court case for custody with all kinds of false allegations placed against me from my ex-wife. Richard Caldecott methodically tore the case down one piece at a time. I started with no custody rights due to my rights being stripped from me at the beginning. I even had to see my children in a closed environment with professionals standing over me. This was the most humiliating experience I have ever had to withstand. The professionals in this environment had already pre-qualified me as guilty of allegations not even in the realm of reality; so you can only imagine their treatment towards me.
With all of the above said, at the end I was awarded full “SOLE LEGAL” custody; even being in Anoka County where the county custody intake women told me “men do not have custody”! Richard is a shining star amongst a bunch of big shot money sucking attorneys I had hired prior. His billing practice is more than fair and he is there for you when you need him the most. His ability to craft letters to explain what is really going on is beyond stellar. I would like to thank my luck stars that I found Richard Caldecott and the friend that referred me.
This short letter comes from a parent that now has an amazing relationship with his two children that will last a lifetime. This all because of Richard Caldecott and his talented abilities as a competent attorney.
Thank you Richard,
the underdog parent
